As a personal note, as one of those unlucky people with a very slow
network connection: if binary packages built by maintainer have to be
discarded, than *please* allow a way to actually not upload them.

I'm in favor of let the buildds generate binaries for all the arch
(even the one the maintainer used to build the package locally), but
having to wait a long time to upload a set of .debs and then see them
discarded it quite uncomfortable, and a waste of time, disk space and
